He then wrote an autobiography account of his journey as a medical student to family doctor on his other blog http://afamilydoctorstale.blogspot.comThis autobiography account “A Family Doctor’s Tale” was combined with his early “A Simple Guide to Medical Disorders” into a new Wordpress Blog “A Family Doctor’s Tale” on http://ken-med.com.From which many free articles from the blog was taken and put together into 1000 eBooks.He apologized for typos and spelling mistakes in his earlier books.He will endeavor to improve the writing in futures.Some people have complained that the simple guides are too simple.For their information they are made simple in order to educate the patients.The later books go into more details of medical disorders.He has published 1000 eBooks on various subjects on health, 1 autobiography of his medical journey, another on the autobiography of a Cancer survivor, 2 children stories and one how to study for his nephew and grand-daughter.The purpose of these simple guides is to educate patient on health disorders and not meant as textbooks.He does not do any night duty since 2000 ever since Dr Tan had his second stroke.His clinic is now relocated to the Buona Vista Community Centre.The 2 units of his original clinic are being demolished to make way for a new Shopping Mall.He is now doing some blogging and internet surfing (bulletin boards since the 1980's) startingwith the Apple computer and going to PC.The entire PC is upgraded by himself from XT to the present Pentium duo core.The present Intel i7 CPU is out of reach at the moment because the CPU is still expensive.He is also into DIY changing his own toilet cistern and other electric appliance.His hunger for knowledge has not abated and he is a lifelong learner.The children have all grown up and there are 2 grandchildren who are even more technically advanced than the grandfather where mobile phones are concerned.This book is taken from some of the many articles in his blog (now with 740 posts) A Family Doctor’s Tale.Dr Kee is the author of:"A Family Doctor's Tale""Life Lessons Learned From The Study And Practice Of Medicine""Case Notes From A Family Doctor"

Chapter 1

My Clinic

My clinic started in January 1974 in a newly established public housing estate which catered for mostly the low income and lower middle income groups of families as well as an old shanty part of Holland Village still occupied by slum like houses.

There were many poor families in the whole estate.

The Poor

To me helping the poor is just part of being a family community doctor.

For the poor I have been charging a minimal sum of medical cost. For those who can pay they will pay. For those who can not pay they do not have to pay.

During our recent relocation of our clinic in 2009( The clinic was relocated to a newer housing estate just across Holland Drive after 35 years because the buildings were getting old and developing drainage and structural problems) while going through the medical record cards in order to discard those patients who have not seen me for at least 10 years. I found that there were patients who still owed me money since 1974 when I first started the clinic.

I do not believe in chasing patients for their money.

There was this Indian foreman who was in charge of our estate rubbish removal. He was poor but he brought his family to see me asking the money to be owed. For 10 years he brought his family for medical treatment.

Knowing that he was poor I did not expect any payment for all these treatments. Yet at the age of 55 years (the retirement age at that time) he was able to withdraw funds from the government Central Provident Fund (A compulsory saving scheme meant for retirement).

To my surprise he asked my nurses to calculate all the medical bills over the years to add up so that he can pay the whole sum.

It was a pleasant surprise for me.

Chapter 2

Family Friend

The family doctor knows the family of his patients like the back of his hands.

For example I see the father for his monthly review of high blood pressure, his wife for osteoporosis, the younger son for weekly injections of vitamin when he was suffering from leukemia and undergoing chemotherapy, the oldest son who is married and now worried about finances (I promised that I will help him out if he does not abort the child) because his wife is confirmed as pregnant.

The oldest son now has 2 children of school going age. The younger son whom the father was worried may be infertile as a result of his chemotherapy is now a proud father of a baby boy. The father himself had hoarseness of the voice which after not improving for 2 weeks was sent for biopsy of his vocal cord and found to have cancer of the larynx. He was treated for this cancer and has been free of cancer for 10 years.

Somehow the family of the patient becomes intertwined with your life and you find yourself asking the patient about his wife, sons and their children each time you meet.

That is only one family.

Another patient whose wife was diagnosed with cancer of the breast after routine mammogram found several lumps in her breast (one of which turned up to cancerous on biopsy) consulted me regarding the removal of the breast which her surgeon wanted
